She hangs my picture forever in her head

'She hangs my picture forever in her head',  mixed media, art journal page.

I thought this line from a poem- she hangs my picture forever in her head- was an apt way of saying the artist remembers, or paints in her mind, a memory of the model, as well as producing a painting on canvas or drawing on paper.   

For my journal page, I started with the colour background, chose a doodle to collage on the page and then chose a line from a poem that seemed to fit, or sum up what had appeared on the page, i.e., background, picture, then words.

Next time, I may try proceeding from the quote lines first to see if I like working that way round, i.e., words then pictures.
